If the diameter of a carbon atom is 0.15 nm, calculate the number of carbon atoms which can be placed side by side in a straight line across length of scale of length 20 cm long.



Q.35:- If the diameter of a carbon atom is 0.15 nm, calculate the number of carbon atoms which can be placed side by side in a straight line across length of scale of length 20 cm long.

 

 

Answer:-

Diameter of a carbon atom = 0.15 nm = 0.15×10-9 m = 1.5×10-10 m



Length along which atoms are to be placed = 20 cm = 2×10-1 m
∴ No. of C-atoms which can be placed along the line = 2×10-1 m/1.5×10-10 m = 1.33×109
